Weird Italics in Internet Explorer

October 27, 2010

For the past several days, my new HP desktop computer (running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit) has shown much of the text of emails and web page text in italics. Some investigation revealed the reason: the non-italicized versions of these fonts (Arial, Georgia and Verdana) seemed to have be uninstalled from the PC.

Although these fonts are not available to download, and running SFC from the command line indicated nothing was wrong with the Windows installation, I was able to reinstall these fonts by doing a search of my C: drive, double clicking on another copy of the regular version of these fonts and then clicking on the install button.
